  • One of the best tastings I've had in Santa Barbara. Beautiful bar area, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and GREAT WINE!
  • Friendly, helpful staff and great wine! We loved the M5 reserve
  • Amazing rose! They have a ton of fabulous, useful accessories, also. Great gift options for wine lovers here.
  • THERE IS A HORRIBLE TROLL GUARDING THE WINE HERE. WE COULD NOT PASS. I was there Saturday afternoon with a party of 8 before we were abruptly ejected from Margerum. We walked into the mostly empty tasting room and sat at a communal table, commenting on the nice decor and the tranquil atmosphere when a woman behind the bar BARKED that a large group would change the dynamic of their establishment. We were completely shocked. We came in with such positivity, respect, and lots of money to spend and before a "hello" was uttered from her, this disgruntled worker told us we were not welcome. Without saying a word, we walked out and took our business to DV8, where we had STELLAR wine and service. The experience DV8 gave us saved our afternoon and the memory of this angry woman soon vanished. Maybe this worker doesn't like her life and resented the happiness we were all feeling. Maybe she finds human interaction a little difficult and should not be in the service industry. But I will commend her on protecting the sour, negative dynamic of Margerum. *UPDATE*- I thank the business owner for the immediate response below, but nowhere is the rude behavior of the worker addressed. Only when she REPRIMANDED US and saw our shocked expressions, did she hastily offer patio seating. As we exited to take our business elsewhere, we eyed the patio and there were no chairs in sight. So uh... thanks for REALLY telling us to get out? Kim at DV8 took excellent care of us and we are now loyal customers. The purpose of this review is solely to advise anyone seeking a pleasant experience in Santa Barbara to avoid this tasting room.
  • Great staff and a GREAT wine! Never disappointed.
